Some of the fish include peacocks, tropheous, kibenesis, clown loach, red tail shark, catfish, lemon jack and many other africans. I run a fluval fx5 filter that i would highly reccomend. Thanks for looking at my fish tank and thanks for the votes.
Advice:WATER CHANGES!!!!! I failed for many years and many fish lives were taken...i used chemicals and it just made it worse....if you do water changes you dont have to worry about anything! Salt helps alot in freshwater to prevent diseases.

About Yourself:I am an office manager to a logging/trucking company and I work a lot so I dont have a lot of time. The one thing I do make time for is my fish because I believe they are absolutely beautiful to watch. I started out with a small 10 gallon tank and had the worst of luck with it. I couldnt keep it from going completely green. Finally I decided I would try one last thing and that was a bigger tank in which is when I went to the 30 gallon. Now I have had the best of luck for the past year and a half.

About Yourself:I was a manager at a big Pet Store that actually knows what their doing with their animals after 7.5 years I now work at a vet clinic. My first fish was a betta when i was in 3rd grade. Before I got married I had a 10 gallon, 2 29 gallons, a 30 gallon, and a 55 gallon in my basement. As a wedding gift my husband got me my pride and joy 120 gallon so we would only have one tank...not 5. I love it. We share our life with 2 Horses, 2 Dogs, Fish, 2 Frogs, a lizard, and a turtle. Its a good life.
